Music Review: Listen to Eric 1Key's "I Miss My Ex"

By Mutsinzi

The poem has hints of provocation directed towards the ex, and signs of tenderness just the same. It paints a gray area between moving on and the knowledge of the imperfect but comfortable bond with the ex.

Hello, it’s me. I’m still the same asshole and “People are stupid” remains my favorite quote

Accompanied by Simbi’s cinematic music, ‘I Miss My Ex’ is Eric 1Key’s blunt and poetic monologue to ‘an ex’. It is delivered as the speaker’s introspective exploration of life after a break up, of how he carried on. The poem has hints of provocation directed towards the ex, and signs of tenderness just the same. It paints a gray area between moving on and the knowledge of the imperfect but comfortable bond with the ex.

‘I Miss My Ex’ is a clever, moving and dramatically honest message to an ex. Whether imagined or real, this poem maintains an authenticity that’s hard to fake.
